Rihanna Showed Up In A Stunning Dress For The 49th Grammy Awards
Rihanna showed up in a stunning dress for the 49th Grammy Awards, where she presented. The green, one-shoulder Roberto Cavalli gown showed just a hint of abs but strikingly revealed her back with an open, low-cut design.
While this dress isn't the most daring compared to her flamboyant performance costumes or the many looks to come in this list, it was a pivotal moment and a beautiful fashion choice for the star on the rise.
Fourth Grammy Red Carpet Appearance, Rihanna Stepped Out In A White Frill And Semi-sheer Gown
For her fourth Grammy red carpet appearance, Rihanna stepped out in a white frill and semi-sheer gown on February 13, 2011. Under the figure-hugging gown, which was created by couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier, the singer wore pasties and ski-colored underwear to trick the eye into believing she was fully bare. Her red lob haircut and red lip beautifully contrasted the white gown.

Rihanna Wore Yet Another Daring Jean Paul Gaultier Look To The American Music Awards
Rihanna wore yet another daring Jean Paul Gaultier look to the American Music Awards on November 24, 2013. The two-piece ensemble had a plunging, beaded bra top and matching skirt that flared out in a mermaid style with sheer lace. Her doobie wrap hairstyle also got people talking because it's a style African American women typically wear in the privacy of their homes, according to Elle.
Rihanna At Met Gala Events
Rihanna has become a fashion icon and staple at Met Gala events because she shows out every year. In one of her earlier appearances, at the "Charles James: Beyond Fashion"-themed Met Gala on May 5, 2014, the singer wore a stunning two-piece look.
Rihanna’s Naked Adam Selman Dress
Rihanna's most daring look of all time — so far — is hands down the "naked" Adam Selman dress that she wore to the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards.
The form-fitting dress covered in Swarovski crystals broke the internet because the sheer material revealed the singer's bare breasts and flesh-toned underwear. The coordinating holographic-like gloves and headpiece and the fur shawl gave a fresh spin on old Hollywood glam.
The now-iconic look was only fitting as Rihanna attended the event to accept the CFDA's fashion icon award.
At The 2014 Amfar La Inspiration Awards
Rihanna continued to push the boundaries on how much skin she revealed at industry events. At the 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Awards honoring Tom Ford, she wore a risqué white flowing gown from the designer with cutouts and a leg slit that revealed black sheer, thigh-high stockings. Sheer bra cups with metallic purple embellishments matched the singer's platform heels. Her slick hairstyle and fabric choker added to the sultry styling of the look.
Bubble Gum Pink Dress
Rihanna was lovingly compared to a cupcake after she appeared in a bubble-gum pink Giambattista Vali dress at the Grammys in February 2015. A dramatic two-tiered, textured skirt poofed out from a simple bandeau-like top. With fresh, dewy makeup and her hair pulled back, Rihanna let the dress be the star of the show, somehow not overpowering her.
In Yellow Chinese Masterpiece
Rihanna proved herself worthy of a throne, looking regal in a yellow masterpiece at the "China: Through The Looking Glass" Met Gala in 2015.
Chinese designer Guo Pei's creation included a 16-foot-long train that cascaded down the steps of the red carpet. Pei told The Cut that the gown and cape took over 50,000 hours to create.
In one of her "that girl" moments, Rihanna strutted the streets in a silk pajama set. On her way to her recording studio, the singer wore the floral-print pink set with a white lace bra, furry heels, and a glass of wine.
A Savage Fanty Look
The singer has since created an empire with Savage X Fenty, her lingerie brand, which also sells pajamas and loungewear.
Despite it being August, the singer opted for an oversized Raf Simons puffer jacket for a shopping spree at Harrods in London, England. Rihanna has worn quite a few dramatic puffer coats. For this occasion, she paired a black patent leather one with yellow sneaker-inspired, lace-up booties.
In Jumpsuit At The Party
After performing and being awarded the VMAs' 2016 vanguard award, Rihanna went to celebrate at Club Up And Down in New York City for her after-party, escorted by an NYPD police officer. She changed into a green sheer and fringe L'Impasse jumpsuit with a plunging neckline.
A Heart-shaped Dress
In yet another iconic fashion moment for the singer, she wore a red, furry, heart-shaped coat in September 2016. After leaving the Saint Laurent Autumn/Winter 2016 showcase, she was seen walking in New York City in the brand's $15,500 coat. She paired the luxurious and quirky outerwear with cut-off denim shorts, strappy heels, and a dad hat.
In An Orange Crystal Bra
On February 12, 2017, at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, the singer arrived in a stunning Armani Privé ensemble. The orange crystal halter bra top exposed her tattoo of Egyptian goddess Isis on her upper rib cage. A highwaisted, full, and ruffled black skirt added even more drama to this look.
Although nominated for eight awards that night, she did not leave with any.
